Probably the only good direct to video Disney sequel

A spinoff of a classic Disney film, starring secondary (and largely one-joke) characters, and loaded with one fart joke after another, this peculiar quasi-sequel... actually pulls it off somehow, and comes together as a genuinely entertaining and by times surprisingly clever film.

Dammit. I feel like I should hate this movie but it's really funny. XD

I enjoyed this as well but this film does kinda ruin the first lion king making it seem like timon and pumbaa were always there.

Though obviously not even close to the quality of the original, it's probably one of the best of the straight to video Disney sequels. It's short, cute and more clever than it has to be.

The first and third act are fun for the most part and add to the Lion King universe, but the second act where the comedic duo Timon and Puumba go around ruining iconic scenes from the first film is unforgivable.

The Lion King 1 1/2 is the prequel to The Lion King that lives up to be as good as the original. It's much more humorous because of the main roles for Timon and Pumbaa.

This is a great prequel 4 Timon & Pumbaa to star in, telling thier backstory of how they first met before they met simba,

It's good and harmless fun, but it definitely isn't the original.

Una muy destacada secuela, impecable sentido del humor; tan buena gráficamente que no pareciera tan nueva y en especial, fiel y atrevida, siguiendo y respetando de manera magistral la secuencia de la primera película. Five stars!

Makes you wish that they would do this to almost every disney movie. A highly creative and individual idea. Though its not art, and doesn't dazzle like the Lion King, it simply doesn't have to. Its here because its charming and it does the job well. I give it 3 and 1/2 stars.

I love The Lion King, they're my #1 favorite animated film as a whole of all-time.

Completely ruins Lion King. It reduces the grandest, and most intense moments of the first Lion King into a fart joke. All those animals bowing to Simba at his birth, visually showing his great destiny and importance he has? Nope, Pumba farts and some pass out and others confuse this as them bowing. Evil uncle and his minions using a huge stampede to kill Mufasa and possibly Simba, showing just what lengths he'll go and just how terrifying it can be? Nope, Pumba farts and the wildebeast are trying to get away from the stench. Seriously. What the hell?

The Lion King 1.5 is hilarious, has a nice story that connects with the first, and is just a much better sequel than The Lion king 2.

Don't go into this it to be something special. It's a direct to video animation sequel, so of course it's not going to be Oscar- worthy. But as far as low budget Disney sequels go, Lion King 1.5 is pretty satisfying, as it possesses it's fair share of catchy songs and witty dialogue. A pretty inventive way to make a sequel, as I do not believe Disney has made any "movie from different perspectives" sequel, and it works relatively well. It doesn't possess anything special however, and it's a pretty forgettable film, to be honest. The voices provided are good enough, and the animation is quite impressive. However, Lion King 1.5 isn't anything special, and does not hold anything extremely memorable, but is good enough as far direct to video sequels go.

Pretty bad story wise, an even further attempt at getting more money, the thing I liked was seeing Simba grow up that was about it... II was for better but got worse rating not sure why...

Fun enough but feels a bit too forced
